California's President, Chancellor
Leave in Wake of Fall Student Riots

university last semester appeared yesterday to have washed out its

University of California President Clark Kerr, who has headed
the nine-campus institution since 1958, submitted his resignation in
a brief statement released at a hastily-called press conference. No
explanation was given for the resignation.
It will take effect March 25 when the California regents hold
their monthly meeting.
At Kerr's side, Acting Chancellor Martin Meyerson of Berkeley
also announced his resignation effective the same date. Like Kerr,
